The iCR transcoder from Amberfin (now part of Dalet) is dedicated and optimized for video file transcoding in post production environments. Especially it's high quality standard conversion, de-interlacing and scaling in software only makes it the tool of choice to harmonize source footage into the house standard or to transcode the finalized clips into the customers prefered format.
This Component for Signiant's Workflow Manger controls Amberfin's iCR transcoder via its API to start, manage and monitor transcoding jobs. The API control allows to individually define parameters when the source files are getting queued for transcoding. Multiple iCR machines can be controlled to build a scaling and redundant transcoding farm.
